Solutions for Congo aid campaign in Kinshasa has begun
The implementation of the "Solutions for Congo" initiative has begun in the capital Kinshasa. Volunteers from the non-governmental organization "FEMME ET ENFANT" carried out the first aid campaign: The main beneficiaries were women in rural areas around Kinshasa. Women farmers in the Funa Valley were sensitized to corona protection measures. To support this population group, protective masks and hydro-alcoholic solutions as well as agricultural inputs were distributed. Masks and hydro-alcoholic solutions were also distributed in selected densely populated districts, including health centers.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have financially supported Solutions for Congo through crowdfunding.
According to the World Health Organization WHO, the corona situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo is as follows: 10,113 confirmed cases, 259 deaths (as of September 4, 2020). The corona virus spreads more slowly in Congo than in other parts of the world due to the generally lower mobility.
Now is therefore the right time to continue to provide active support to prevent widespread spread. After all, the fragile health care system of the African country would collapse in this case.
